I’ll begin to answer this question with another question: How do grown-ups go about making friends? How do people who aren’t forced to go to the same building every day make friends?
When I first learned about unschooling, I had trouble envisioning exactly what that meant. I heard about an approach to life where kids were free to do whatever they wanted, with whomever they wanted, for as long as they wanted, I was understandably skeptical.
So we packed up our life (again) and headed south for sunny New Hampshire. We were greeted by more than a dozen smiling helpers to welcome us “home.” We’re planted in Dover at the moment, and loving everything about it.
